The school has implemented the midday snack break since 9 January 2017. Riverians clearly appreciate and enjoy the snack break as it helps them to sustain their energy level till the end of the school day. Parents are reminded to prepare healthy snacks which are easy for their child to manage during the 10-minute snack break in the classroom. It would be helpful for pupils to have wet wipes with them to clean up after the snack break.
